    hello, im quite new to youtube uploading and ranking, just wondering how many views/likes you guys think it would take to get on first page for a keyword like this: "despicable me 2"
    just a rough estimate..?

    Thanks
    Seany

    The high retention views isn't the only factor accounted for when ranking your video. You're going to need a combination of likes, dislikes, subs, high retention views, and some SEO. There are many threads in the youtube section where you can acquire some detailed information about ranking a video.
    Good luck

    what moosey said, and just look at the vids ranking on first page, i see vids ranking with just 6k views + a couple of likes, pretty much try to copy them :)

    also i think backlinks are important?, not sure about the thing. just search for backlinks checker in google and analize the vids :)

    The last thing you'd think matters when it comes to ranking a YT video, is the most vital thing to do...quality/relevant backlinks.

    Views play their role of course. However, look up keywords in YT yourself and notice a pattern.

    Spot #1: 1 month old, 7000 views
    Spot #2: 1 year old, 6000000 views

    SEO my friend.
